Nuisance Wildlife in Dallas
Dallas, TX, is a highly urbanized area with a climate that changes with the seasons. Displaced animals are often in conflict with people.
White-tailed deer are all too common in populated areas. Their presence has safety, health, and economic impacts. Potential issues include:
- Vehicle vs. deer accidents on roadways
- Increased numbers of ticks carrying Lyme disease
- Damage to gardens and ornamental plants
Expanding suburbs near Dallas have also pushed coyotes closer to people. These animals sometimes assume garbage cans are an invitation to forage for food. A coyote can quickly become comfortable in residential areas and may attack pets.
The limited number of cold-weather days in Texas allows wild hogs to thrive in the region. They destroy plants and can also transmit brucellosis to people.
